The Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel


Today is the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel!  This title for Our Lady is the one most closely associated with the Brown Scapular.

Story: Our Lady appeared to St. Simon Stock, Superior General of the Carmelite Order (this was shortly after its founding) and presented to him the Brown Scapular: the “Garment of Grace.”  With the wearing of the Brown Scapular comes many graces, one of which is that those who wear the Scapular will not see the fires of hell–however, the Scapular reminds those who wear it of their devotion to Mary, not their invincibility.
